The summer is unofficially over, at least for students starting their first day back to school.
Students at W.H. Robinson in Pitt County arrived bright and early for the start of the new year.
Pitt County Information Officer, Heather Mayo says, things ran relatively smoothly this morning.
But she says some school buses were late, and some schools had long lines due to parents registering students late.
With the change in the dress code, Mayo says students seemed to enjoy the increase in options of black or navy shirts along with shirts in their school colors.
Principal Tiffany Vincent says first day of school jitters are felt by parents and kids alike.
Pitt County School expects to have 23 thousand students enroll, which is also a decline from last year.
We're told it's due to new legislation affecting kindergartners.
Which says they have to be five before or on August 31st in order to enroll.
